Contemporary Jewish Museum/SOMA

Pros: Jewish culture and art exhibits endearing to non-Jews and people of all backgrounds
Cons: None
Best For: Developing an understanding of the creative spirit within us all

Contemporary Jewish Museum

The Contemporary Jewish Museum is not a collecting museum, rather an institution which focuses on education and inter-faith outreach. Exhibits, live performances, lectures, readings and historical objects are what you can partake of here.

The museum was founded in 1984 and was redesigned by architect Daniel Libeskind in 2008 at a cost of 47.5 million dollars. It makes for a very impressive backdrop against the profound emotional content of exhibit installations. Come to linger a while and contemplate the commonalties of all men.

Noteworthy: Rentable, cool spaces for large events
